Despite being highly skeptical that Scream 4 would be any good I have decided I just may give it a chance. I was quite the fan of the first two Scream movies, but lost my love on movie three. I felt it ruined the delicate balance of typical cheesy horror movie and genius horror film thanks in large part to the cheesy characters, crappy Hollywood location, and pathetic explanations. Not to mention the fact that it was completely missing the number one element needed to make a decent horror film, fear. I wasn’t scared at any point…hell I can’t even say I was surprised. Which is why I looked at the approaching Scream 4 as being yet another pathetic attempt to milk the Scream cow, but the trailer gives me hope.
It seems that they have gotten rid of a lot of the elements that made Scream 3 cheesy. There are pretty much all new characters and the “rules” are being explained by a whole new generation. One thing I truly hated was the fact that 3 brought back Randy in that video from the afterlife, can you say lame? Also they appear to pay homage to the previous movies while breathing new life into the story line, they threw in some alumni, decent cameos, and old fan favorites. All in all I think they may have hit on a pretty decent horror flick.
Plus I always say if the trailer doesn’t suck there is a good chance the movie won’t either. So here’s hoping because we need another decent 90′s style horror movie. We hit on a good teen comedy last year with Easy A, now lets see if we can do it again.
